Advantages of Lingual braces
This is an advanced method of braces, has many advantages, but not everyone can apply.
@ Lingual braces have high aesthetics:
Lingual braces fixed on the inside by concealing the brackets on the inside of the teeth, so the opposite person if not careful attention will not recognize you are braces.
For patients who are active in the public sphere, expecting their images to appear spontaneously while still being treated for braces, this is the right approach for you.
You will confidently laugh and say quite naturally, not be afraid to reveal brackets, a bunch of elastic or steel wire as the old type of braces.
Therefore, this aesthetic advantage over other methods of braces outside.
@ High orthodontic effect:
Although brackets are attached to the inside of the teeth, it is difficult to move the teeth to the desired position. But in fact, the effect of this method is quite high. The contraction or pulling of the braces and wire, which are moderately and reasonably calibrated, will help stabilize and produce satisfactory results.
However, this is a difficult method so along with the advantages you will realize they also have quite a few shortcomings.
What are the disadvantages of Lingual braces?
@ First, you will find it uncomfortable to use this braces.
With braces attached to the outside, discomfort occurs when the cheek area is exposed to braces during the first 7-10 days.
With Lingual braces, the discomfort will appear permanently because your tongue will touch the bracket and the wire almost 24/24 … early time unfamiliar your tongue may be prickly, slightly painful and uncomfortable. However, do not worry too much because this feeling will gradually disappear.
@ Second, difficulty in oral hygiene:
It is important to share that when you choose Lingual braces, you must be very patient.
With the inside of the tooth, you usually have to spend a lot of time cleaning it. In case of Lingual braces, it is obvious that cleaning will be more difficult.
To brush teeth, the space between teeth with braces, the neck of teeth… will take quite a long time to complete.
However, you do not need too much worry, as now, the cleaning tools to help clean the teeth for bracing objects are very rich and convenient.
@ Third, the cost of treatment is quite high:
As a share on, this is the method of difficult braces, requiring techniques, professional skills of doctors should be high. The more experience, the more gentle treatment for both patients and doctors.
The balance of the traction, as well as the placement of bracket when applying Lingua braces fixation is not as simple as the external fixation. Doctors have to calculate every detail meticulously, monitor progress more often than usual, strength control is also harder than braces on the outside.
Therefore, the cost of treatment of Lingual braces is higher than other braces.
Currently, the system of braces is always improved better, gradually overcome the inherent weaknesses. And create more advantages for patients. The Lingual braces (on the inside) is still very popular with consumers, as well as proven to deliver high levels of stability.
